Speedo illumination bulb
« on: 10 December, 2017, 18:26:16 »
Hi,
     I have a Smiths 1680 speedo on my C15 which I think is standard. There is no provision as far as I can see for a light bulb - is this correct?

Many thanks,
Phil

Not sure but I believe that on some models with a slit in the side covered, obviously, with a thin piece of clear material and the bulb holder was attached to the side, so that the light shone through, they were never much good though, as I have never seen one that illuminates the speedometer correctly.

Regards TTJohn

OK - thanks John. I won't bother with that then.
